I first made these mushrooms when I was having stomach trouble and just couldn’t stand the thought of digesting meat. Now, trust me, this is not a usual position for me as I do love a good piece of meat.

But these stuffed mushrooms are delicious and filling, without feeling heavy or hard to digest.

They’re a great meat-free meal to add to your repertoire and can be served with vegetables or just a lovely tossed salad. The combination of creamy cheeses and tangy goat’s cheese is perfect against the classic combination of spinach and garlic. I would think that you could easily adapt the filling to suit your tastes, keeping within keto guidelines of course. Give them a try and see what you think.

Hi Naomi,
I want to thank you for the stuffed mushroom recipe, however, I found I couldn't print it.
Is that on purpose, an upload error or maybe it's my computer. The print option is shown, but not available when opted. What's up?

Hi Richard, I can see the print option - it's right below the list of ingredients. I hope this helps!

Hi, is this recipe suitable for the fat fast?

I wouldn't necessarily use it for the fat fast but here's a selection of suitable recipes (higher fat content): (one of them is pizza-stuffed mushrooms). I hope this helps!

This recipe is really easy and delicious.  This is the only way my husband eats mushrooms 😊

Thank you! 😊

I'm new at the keto diet and love your recipes. I'm doing the vegetarian version. How do I determine the actual calories in your recipes? I'm trying to track everything I eat.
Thank you for what you're doing to help people get and remain healthy.

Thank you Toni! Calories are listed as "kcal" - I hope this helps!

These are totally delicious and make a great dinner!  So happy we have some left over for dinner tomorrow, great recipe!

These look like so much fun. I love the fact that they're different than what you normally see but they'd be instantly appealing as well.
The only catch I see is that people either love mushrooms or hate them. For the mushroom lovers, they are amazing. For the haters, well, perhaps not a good plan.

I'm definitely a mushroom lover, especially if it's wild mushrooms 😊
